Sculptor Jeffie Brewer to Publish Art Book With K.Co Press

“I am thrilled to be publishing my first book with K.Co Press. This has been on my radar for some time and the outpouring of support from colleagues, collectors and contributors so far has been delightful. I look forward to seeing the story come together!” Jeffie said.

Readers will find contributed essays from art experts, new behind-the-scenes photos and more, including:

  • Essays by curators and public art directors on the impact of Jeffie’s exhibitions
